Vehicle recycling

Vehicle recycling

Vehicle recycling or car recycling is the dismantling of vehicles for spare parts. The process of recycling a vehicle is extremely complicated as there are many parts to be recycled and many hazardous materials to be removed before the remaining shell is crushed flat, or cubed, to facilitate economical transportation in bulk to an industrial shredder or hammer mill.

Thanks to their low weight and the special blade design, Holmatro’s hydraulic cutters are ideal for cutting catalytic converters, exhaust pipes, doors, A- and B-posts, drive shafts (hollow), engine mountings, steering columns, bumpers, bull bars and pressed steel wishbones. The lightest cutter only weighs 9.4 kg, and the special U-shaped blades "20 short" and "30 standard" pull the material towards the strongest point of the cutter.

Mobile cutters

Holmatro hydraulic mobile cutters are specially developed for use ‘in the field’. Mobile cutters are constructed from high-grade aluminium resulting in strong yet very light tools. The pump units are also specially developed for mobile use. The pumps, electric- or petrol-driven, are compact and light in weight, enabling work to be carried out at locations that are difficult to access.

For car recycling blade types "20 short" and "30 standard" are developed. These blade types contain special U-shaped blades that pull the material towards the strongest point of the cutter.

Stationary cutters

Holmatro hydraulic stationary cutter are specially developed for continuous use, like, for example, processes whereby repeated tasks (cutting, flattening, and tearing) are carried out at a fixed point on the production line. For this model, the accent is placed on durability (high load frequency) and ergonomics (prolonged physical demands). Stationary cutters are constructed from high-grade steel. A balancer compensates the weight increase in comparison to the portable aluminium model. The hydraulic pump is also adapted to meet the demands of continuous use.

Stationary cutters are equipped with a rotation mechanism that makes it possible to rotate a tool in any direction and under any angle. The operator can cut objects without first having to place them in a particular position. This feature enables higher productivity levels. Of greater importance is the fact that the physical demands made on the operators were been greatly reduced.

For car recycling blade types "20 short" and "30 standard" are developed. These blade types contain special U-shaped blades that pull the material towards the strongest point of the cutter.
